Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
What is Platelet Rich Plasma?
Platelet Rich Plasma therapy, commonly known as PRP, is plasma containing more platelets than normal and is used for various medical treatments. It is blood that contains an increased number of platelets. These platelets contain some proteins, or growth factors, which aid in providing the body with faster cell regeneration. Studies have shown that introducing Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) to an injured area tends to heal the muscles, surrounding tissues and ligaments faster. Unlike other therapies, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is all natural and produces faster, better results. It is like a concentrated kick-start to your body’s natural healing process.
Will PRP Get Rid of Surgery as an Option?
The answer to this lies in the extent of the injury or damage done to the area in question. For every dental procedure we do here, we always offer our patients the option to get a pain management treatment to help make a recovery more comfortable. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is an option we offer to make sure that after performing procedures, our patients can heal as quickly as possible, reducing the impact on their daily lives. We live in a busy world, and we know that getting back to your normal life is important to you. That is why we believe that your aftercare treatment is just as important and the procedure we performed.
How Is The PRP Made and Administered to Patients?
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is administered through an injection. The PRP is first made by drawing blood from the patient and placing it in a centrifuge. The centrifuge separates the platelets that are responsible for healing from the rest of the blood. What remains is the RPR that we will then use. Typically, this will result in several injections to the treated area. However, the number of injections depends on the severity of the injury or damage.
